Triangle Nonprofit Accelerates Low-Income Women’s Journey to Self-Sufficiency
RALEIGH, N.C. — August 19, 2014: Dress for Success Triangle will open its doors on August 28th to all low-income women in the Triangle who are unemployed or underemployed for a special one day event, “Jump Start Your Job Search”. 
Dress for Success, which helps women achieve self-sufficiency by providing tools to succeed in the workplace, will provide each woman with a free suit and shoes for her job search and a short session with a Career Coach.
After a woman receives a suit for her interviews and obtains employment, she is invited to return to Dress for Success for her first week’s clothing at work, and becomes a free, life-time member of the Professional Women’s Group. Additional resources and support are available to her from Dress for Success throughout her professional career. Through its dedicated services and programs, Dress for Success Triangle addresses every phase of a woman’s career—from unemployed and searching for a job, recently employed and adjusting, and gainfully employed and succeeding. 
Often for many women, the suit provided is the first business suit she’s ever owned, and helps to boost her confidence when interviewing. One client, after receiving a suit and a short coaching session said, “I just wanted to let you know that I GOT THE JOB! I am so happy. I am really shy and never talk but thanks to Dress for Success, I was so ready for that interview. I am so confident and proud of myself.”
The “Jump Start Your Job Search” day, from 10 am to 6 pm, will operate at Dress for Success located in the Urban Ministries of Wake County building, at 1390 Capital Blvd, Raleigh. No appointment is needed, women only are invited. This event is for women who have not yet been to Dress for Success.
